Fast-casual pizza leader offers made-to-order, custom creations in less than 5 minutes
CHICAGO, March 14, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Pie Five Pizza, known for its made-from-scratch dough and freshly prepared ingredients, announced its return to Skokie, Illinois. Located at 4999 Old Orchard Court, the new Pie Five location is owned and operated by local franchisee, Marwan Murrar.
"I could not pass up the opportunity to open another Pie Five restaurant in the Skokie area," said Murrar. "Pie Five is the perfect spot to grab a craft pizza with house-made dough and a variety of custom toppings made in just five minutes. This new location is for pizza-loving guests who want customizable pizza options without the hassle of a long wait."
More than just another fast-casual pizza concept, Pie Five exceeds the standards in fresh, high-quality craft pizzas with dough made in-house every morning in every store. The team uses house-shredded whole milk mozzarella and chops garden fresh veggies by hand in the kitchen. Pie Five also mixes up its own marinara sauce with fresh tomatoes and a special spice blend recipe.
The new Pie Five is located in the popular outdoor Westfield Old Orchard Center and will feature in-store and to-go delivery options with a simplified menu. The Skokie location’s restaurant hours are 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Saturday, and 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Sunday. This is the second location in the state and the 33rd store location systemwide.
"Our brand takes house-made to a whole new level and offers incredible value to the craft pizza scene," said RAVE Restaurant Group Chief Executive Officer, Brandon Solano. "This is Murrar’s second Pie Five location in addition to Oakbrook Mall, and we are confident that he will continue to serve local guests with excellent service and delicious, personalized pizzas."

- Mike’s Sticky Fingers: loaded with curl and crisp pepperoni and traditional pepperoni drizzled with chili-infused Mike’s Hot Honey from the crust to the center of the pizza.
